Import Merge Results File
|Top Previous Next|
Select this Import option to import a HY-TEK Results file that was exported from another computer running MM. The export file contains meet results from another MM Database that are to be "merged" with your Master Database. The file name for this Results export is always in this format: HFilexxx.HY3 where "xxx" is a sequential number beginning with"001". This file may be zipped and if it is, the zipped file name will be: Meet Results-Meet Name-MeetDate-xxx.zip where "xxx" is a sequential number beginning with"001".
The typical scenario for this type of situation would be running a meet at two or more venues or running a double ended meet with two computers. One computer would be designated the Master and each day, a backup from the Master Database would be loaded onto the other computers. After the day's session has been completed, each computer other than the Master would export results to be merged and then the Master computer would then Import each of these sets of results into the Master database. Only rounds that have been completed, seeded, or partially completed are merged into the Master Database.
From the Main Menu Bar, click on File / Import / Merge Results (MM To MM). MM will then import the results that were exported from another MM Database and MM will match on Event Number since these results would be merged based on the same meet setup.
Please keep in mind that when merging results from the source computer to a target computer, the events in the source Database must be a higher status than the one in the target Database. For example, if event 9 is timed finals and computer A has results completed, but not scored, the round is "done". If the computer B has the same event with results done and scored, B cannot be merged into A. The final round "done" and the final round "scored" are considered the same level. The only way computer Be's data for event 9 can be merged is if in computer A event 9 is either unseeded or round 1 seeded. If event 10 is prelim/final, then finals done/scored is higher than finals seeded, prelims done, prelims seeded, and unseeded.
Importing Diving Results
Diving results can also be imported using this option if the results hy3 file comes from eDive or DiveMeets.com.
The typical scenario for this type of situation would be running a meet that has both swimming and diving. You would export the diving entries from MM and import them into the diving product. ?After or during the diving portion of the meet, you would export results from the diving program and import them into your MM database.
Please keep in mind that when merging results from a diving program to MM, the events in the diving program must be a higher status than the ones in MM. Normally this would not be a problem unless you also entered some diving results manually in MM.?For example, if event 9 is the 1 meter dive and has 2 cuts (3 rounds) and the diving program has the first cut done (i.e round 1 completed), it will not be imported by MM if this same round 1 already has results in it. The only way event 9 can be merged in this case is if event 9 in MM is either unseeded or round 1 seeded.?If event 10 is prelim/final (one cut), then finals done/scored is higher than finals seeded, prelims done, prelims seeded, and unseeded. Also keep in mind the diving events must be set up in MM before you do the merge.
